We are still looking for someone to serve as First Associate Moderator. Please contact any member of Council if you have any questions and if you would like to volunteer to be First Associate Moderator.
Thank you to all the volunteers who will help us become the church we want to be. Please think about which boards and offices can use your talents, time, and energy. Please contact anyone on the new Nominating Committee or on Council to discuss ways that you can help our church.

From the FCC website, click on the “Facebook” heading at the top of the homepage, and it will open to the FCC Facebook page.

Remember that you can view this at any time if you miss the Sunday morning “live” version.
Our church council continues to support this difficult decision, that we suspend services and all church gatherings until further notice. We feel it is in the best interest of our church community and greater community if we do not risk spreading this virus. Check our Facebook page for live-streamed content from our church services: www.facebook.com/FCCSLC. We also plan to announce joys and concerns, and you may send any joys or concerns to the church or Diane Forster Burke.
As the Covid vaccines become more-widely distributed, it is hoped that in-person worship can be contemplated in our near future. By the end of March, most of our congregation will likely have received the “jab,” allowing re-evaluation of worship in the sanctuary. As the situation evolves, we will continue to seek and follow the advice of our Parish Nurses, who are closely monitoring health directives and recommendations.
